Don't Forget To Write!
Give any room an old world send-off with Wendy Gold's stunning, vintage globe art. A familiar object is transported to a sphere of pure imagination as Gold carefully sources antique globes and transforms them into one-of-a-kind worlds using hand-cut, "decoupaged" paper banners. Arranged with the charm and palette from another era, Gold seal the sweeping patterns with a modern coat of eco-friendly varnish. The end result is a geographic sculpture of uncharted beauty--perfectly weathered and utterly unique. Handmade in San Francisco.
Due to the handmade nature of this item, each globe and stand is one of a kind and will vary.

- the maker
Wendy Gold is an artist inspired by unique and unusual canvases. She first gained notoriety when she began decoupaging one-of-a-kind toilet seats and bathroom scales. Her work was instantly recognized for its originality and she quickly garnered a clientele including many A-list celebrities, along with a who's who of retailers, restaurants, hotels, interior designers, and home decor enthusiasts.
Always looking for new inspiration, she stumbled across a beautiful antique globe at a flea market and immediately recognized her next canvas. In early 2010, she launched ImagineNations™ and brought her unique brand of design to the canvas of world globes. By using recycled materials and vintage globes, she creates beautiful works of art, and brings a new touch of earthly responsibility to her work.
Wendy has built upon her ImagineNations™ brand by offering a line of recycled, hand-signed and numbered lithographs featuring her designs interplaying with vintage world maps.
Wendy has been featured on CNN, NPR, Newsweek, USA Today, InStyle, Travel+Leisure, and hundreds of other local, national and international media outlets. She has also appeared on the TV show, "I've Got a Secret." When not in her Bay Area studio, Wendy enjoys doing art projects with her daughter, scouring local flea markets, drinking green smoothies, kick boxing, and putting her artistic touch to good use at home and wherever she goes. collection
